Michigan's jayvee gridders open
their 1948 football campaign at
10 o'clock this morning against the
'B' - team from Northwestern on
the Perry Field gridiron.
The Wolverines, under the di-
rection of their new coach, Don
Robinson, will be striving to
avenge the defeat they suffered
in Evanston last year, when the
Wildcats triumphed, 20-6.
has already played one game this
season. They dropped a close one
to Illinois, 7-6.
One of the major complaints of
any jayvee coach at Michigan is
the fact that he has very little
time to drill his men on Michigan
plays, since most of the time they
are required to run the plays of
the Varsity's opponent for the
coming week.
An interesting sidelight of this
game will be to watch the jayvees
on defense. They have been
running Northwestern's plays all
week and by this time should know
them inside out.
THE FACT still remains, how-
ever, that in order to chalk up a
triumph in their first attempt the
Wolverines are going to have to
cross that last chalk mark at least
once, besides holding the Wildcats.
Coach Robinson presented a list
of whom he thinks will be able
to do the job.
Alternating at left end will be
John Anderson and George Suth-
erland. Dave Gomberg will start
at left tackle with John Powers
playing along side him at guard.

"BY" LASKY will work in the,
center slot, and John Maturo, a'
veteran of last year's campaign,
will start in the right guard posi-
tien. Leo Flynn and John Eizonas
will operate at right tackle, and
Rostom Tandourjian will handle
the end duties.
Irv Small, who directed the Wol-
verine attack last season, will start
at quarterback, with Jim Moorish
and Bill Jennings alternating at
tailback. John Obee will handle
the right half duties, and Norm
Jackson, another vet from last
year's squad, will be the starter at

,slightly injured. However, the
versatile end has been work-

C ch Bennie Oosterbaan will
proLrably start McNeill at right
end 'on offense.
For the first time the two-team
system will be extensively used.
Oosterbaan, will use Dick Rifen-
burg and iVIcNeill at the ends on
his offensive unit. The rest of
the line when Michigan has pos-
session will be Joe Soboleski and
Ralph Kohl at tackles; Captain
Dom. Tomasi and Stu Wilkins at
guards; and Bob Erben at the
pivot post.
Defensively the line will run
f rom end to end like this : Ozzie
Clarl, Al Wistert, Quent Sickels,
Dan Dworsky, Lloyd Heneveld,
Al Wa,111 and Harry Allis. Allis will
replace McNeill on defense and if
the big senior is unable to go then
Irv Wisniewski will take over the
offensive slot.

WITH GENE Derricotte still
sidelined with a bum knee, the
same backfield that has sparked

two outings will start.

DICK HURST, Night Editor
Pete Elliott, who has devel-
oped into a top-notch signal cal-
ler, will handle the quarter-
backing while Tomt Peterson
will hold down the offensive
fullback post.
At the halfbacks will be Leo Ko-
ceski and Chuck Ortmann, the
two sensational sophomores. But
Wally Teninga, who did so well
last week at both the wingback
and tailback slots is sure to see
plenty of action.

DEFENSIVELY the backfield
will line up with Elliott, Ortmann,
Teninga and Dick "Killer" Kemp-
thorn. The Canton, Ohio mauler
will team with Dworsky in' an ef-
fort to smother the vaunted Wild-
cat attack.

It was about a year ago this af-
ternoon that Quentin Sickels held

Sickels, Michigan's defensive
right guard, recalls that the Wol-
verines took the best end of the
49-21 score. But he shudders when
he thinks of Sickels taking the
worst of the Wildcats' trap plays
all afternoon.
NOT ONLY the Benton Harbor
boy, but the rest of the Wolverine
defensive unit had a bad case of
gaposis last year. As Wilf rid Smith
of the Chicago Tribune saw it,
"Michigan's defenders were amaz-
ingly inept at times."
That's exactly how Sickels felt
throughout the entire first half.
He was caught in more mouse
traps than any piece of Kraft's fa-
vorite brand. "I'd look up and

and Aschenbrenner whizzing by."
AT HALFTIME, however, Fa-
ther Crisler sat down and had a
heart-to-heart talk with Sickels.
He said, "Quent, m'boy, does any-
thing hurt you? If there is, we've
got a comfortable bench . .."

Those medicinal words cured
Sickels. "I knew what I had done
wrong against the Wildcats," he
admitted, "but they were a tricky

With the opening game of the
season against Illinois only one
week off, Coach Cliff Keen saw his
150-pound grid "Blue" squad romp

in an intrasquad scrimmage yes-
The "Reds" got the first break
of the session when Bill Clark of
the "Reds" recovered a "Blue"
fumble, of the kickiff on the 23-
yard line. A strong "Blue" defense,
however, held the "Reds" to four
yards on two running plays and
batted down a pair of passes.
Starting on their own 19-
yard line, the "Blues" then
